How are the rates set on the utility bill? Will they increase?

The Operations Department sets the rates through bylaws, and they are based upon the operational costs of the utility. In most cases, the operational costs of the utility are paid from the user rates.

The current Water Rates and Regulations Bylaw provides for an annual increase for most CSRD-owned systems. For further information please contact the Operations Department by phone at 250-833-5950 or by email.
